Re: PH Gunfight thread

Will you be requesting the CV's of those that respond that they would?

Re: $88,000 fine imposed on a group of target shooters

Why would one feel justified in both owning a gun and not being financially responsible for associated accidents? Likely due to the over-arching belief in many things that "It won't happen to me." It's an interesting question. My question is about morals, not a legality. My impression is that "clea...

Re: PH Gunfight thread

My post that polled forum members for whether or not they will be bringing one or more their guns to the meet-n-deet tomorrow night was deleted by Bosterson because he misinterpreted it as trolling.

Re: $88,000 fine imposed on a group of target shooters

If guns are as safe as advocates maintain, then the cost of insurance would be small. Wouldn't the purported benefits of private ownership (as argued by gun advocates) outweigh the cost of insurance? Regardless, is it morally right to not be financially responsible? Why would one feel justified in ...

Re: $88,000 fine imposed on a group of target shooters

Mandatory insurance to exercise a constitutional right? If guns are as safe as advocates maintain, then the cost of insurance would be small.

Re: $88,000 fine imposed on a group of target shooters

I think in the case of the OP topic, $88K is pretty reasonable for 40 acres of fire destruction I agree, $88k is a fine punishment for what happened What is that? leniency extended to other gun-rights advocates? $88k does not cover the cost of the damage caused by the fire. It merely recovers the c...
